Six young people under the age of 25 — three loggers, a landscape worker, a farmworker and a commercial diver — and an 80-year-old equipment operator are among the 89 people who died from work-related causes in 2014.

They will be honored at the state Department of Labor & Industries’ Worker Memorial Day ceremony at 2 p.m. Tuesday.

The ceremony, which is open to the public, will be at L&I’s main building in Tumwater, 7273 Linderson Way S.W.

The ceremony will include a reading of the names of the workers who died, accompanied by bell ringers from the Washington State Council of Fire Fighters.

After the ceremony, families of the workers are invited to ring the brass bell in the Worker Memorial garden.
